A retrospective on the renowned Italian filmmaker, Pier Paolo Pasolini, is being held at the Seoul Art Cinema from April 4 to 29. The director, who was also a poet, critic, script writer, semiologist and novelist, was born the son of a Fascist officer and the daughter of a peasant family in Bologna. His works have always drawn controversy for their concentration on themes of homosexuality and violence, Mr. Pasolini’s breaking of taboos and his disdain for fascism and the bourgeoisie. Works will include “Oedipus Rex,” “120 Days of Sodom,” “Teorema” and “The Gospel According to St. Matthew.” The event is put on by the Italian Cultural Institute and the Film Institute Seoul.
